The Canby Robinson Society has helped ease the burden of student debt through the CRS Scholarship Program.
Launched in 1987, the program provides full-tuition scholarships that, with satisfactory progress at Vanderbilt, continue for four years.
The scholarships are awarded on the basis of demonstrated leadership and scholarship activities. Scholarship recipients are recommended by the dean of the School of Medicine and the chair of the Admissions Committee. Their recommendations are then forwarded to the Canby Robinson Society Scholarship Selection Committee for final approval.
The Society supports more than 25 scholars each year seeking M.D. and M.D./Ph.D. degrees. Of the CRS scholars who have graduated, two have been named Founder’s Medalists among a host of other distinctions.
